 About the role

As a Senior User Experience Designer you will have an unhealthy obsession with the customer and will tackle complex problems and transform them into designs that not only look great, but are intuitive and easy to use. You will be immersed in the product development lifecycle – from understanding the business case and customer problem, to driving the user experience strategy and co-designing with a cross-functional team to deliver customer focused experiences using agile delivery techniques.

You will be awesome at combining business objectives with user needs to create deliverables such as personas, user journeys, sitemaps, wireframes, designs and

interactive prototypes. You will be experienced in presenting your design rationale using customer insights to stakeholders and the design team. You will have a pragmatic approach to design – appreciating MVP and balancing the need to deliver to customers with things that are nice to have or can be implemented in later stages.

As a Senior Experience Designer, you will be looked upon for guidance from the less experienced practice members. You will take a primary role in ensuring quality across the Practice, from clearly demonstrating what quality is, to undertaking peer reviews and one on one training.
